The temple itself offers nothing special. But what you find inside is.
After removing your shoes you will be walking through a hallway. In the middle you will see a huge Buddah meditating. He is not alone as on his left are 500 statues, same of his right. It is nice to appreciate something a few hundred years old. If you pay attention you will see that each face is different! Quite a good work! For an impressive look, stand on one of either side of the room, align with the first row of statues, and look at them. The garden looks beautiful too. As of February 2020 the entrance fee for an adult is 600Y. Taking photos is prohibited inside the temple.

Well worth a visit, not that far from the station. You need to pay on entry and once in you need to take off your shoes and either wear the slippers provided or walk with your socks.
The pathway to see the sculptures of the heavenly Gods and 1001 buddhas, no photos allowed but the whole visit feels very peaceful and calm and so very beautiful. There is a shop at the end.
Highly recommend a walk round the gardens on the side and visit the little shrine behind which was in bloom with plum blossoms on our visit
